Lot 204: CD 701.6 "Scrambled Eggs a la carte"  Color: Aqua  Description: This lot is a pair of Confederate Egg insulators that were fused together; a great relic from the fires in Richmond during the Civil War. The "Confederate Eggs", dating back to the 1860's, were salvaged from a construction site in Richmond, Virginia in the early 1990's. This pair is your "Grade A+ fancy scrambled eggs" in that these are two aqua eggs fused together! The aqua colored eggs are far less common than the typical blackglass eggs, and this set transmits more light and gives a totally different appearance than the typical blackglass clump. If ever there was an insulator that was a piece of American history, it is the Confederate Egg!
Estimate: $250 - $400  Open: $10
